For most people, physical activity should not pose any problem or hazard. Many health benefits are associated with a sensible program of regular, moderate and adequate exercise. The completion of this physical activity readiness questionnaire is an important first step to allow you to begin or continue safely with physical activity. Determining physical activity readiness enables the identification for the small number of adults for whom some physical activity might be inappropriate, or those who should have medical advice concerning the most suitable type of activity.

Please read and answer these questions carefully:

1. Has a doctor ever said you have heart trouble? *
2. Do you frequently have pains in your heart and/or chest? *
3. Do you often feel faint or have spells of severe dizziness? *
4. Has a doctor ever said that your blood pressure was too high? *
5. Has a doctor ever told you that you have a bone or joint problem, such as arthritis, that has been aggravated by exercise, or might be made worse with exercise? *
7. Are you taking any medication that affects your exercising ability? *
